WELCOME TO THE ENTERTAINER'S BASKETBALL CLASSIC.
The World's Premier Streetball Basketball League.
The Entertainer’s Basketball Classic (EBC), is the world’s premier streetball basketball league held every summer at Rucker Park, in Harlem, NY. The games take place all summer long and showcase professional and amateur players alike. The games provide free access to attend these games, and over the years have drawn players such as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Kevin Durant and many more, to pound the pavement in the park. Owner and CEO, Greg Marius, founded the tournament in 1982 as a friendly challenge within the Hip Hop community. Today, Marius has taken the event to another level through partnerships with athletes, musicians, and other celebrities, to not only produce a competitive basketball game, but add an entertainment value that is unsurpassed in the name of streetball basketball.
This year the league starts on June 13th and ends on August 14th.
